Most residential homes in the big cities and suburbs are no longer designed with sprawling lawns. Lack of space and exorbitant price of the land is forcing many to design an entire house for the smallest of plots in the city. So it is difficult to plan a generously sized garden on a tiny piece of land. However, you may still have greenery around your house. The following examples will show you how.

The orange colour of the wall that can be seen through various creeping plants add spice in the otherwise calm and cosy space.
